Even if your design in the preliminary phase it worth to have some nice image of it. Your client will understand it better he can imagine it better and he surely will like it more. 🙂
So when Vogt Architecten asked me to make some nice image of their cool simple modern design I was happy to do it. After having the model finished it was a little challenging to integrate it into the photo they made at the site but finally it came out nice. With the pleasant river bank, it became really attractive.
It is quite comfortable to push new things on a blog BUT some nice stuff sink easily in time… So there are some images worth to check.
This post will be available in the menu and some more to come so check back soon… 🙂
Some years ago I worked on a very nice family villa on the calm hilly Buda side of the city designed by Miklós Miltényi and Emese Virt.
Conception plans for a residential complex consist of approximately 3000 flats. Many concepts for the residential and for the public buildings were made. In addition to the dwellings we designed sport facilities, kindergarten and school as well. Our goal was to create a solid and diverse design in the same time.
A very interesting project was to design a modern style weekend house in a small city next to the lake Balaton. We decided to make a ‘mini competition’ in the office so our client could choose from different designs. Finally my design was chosen so the final plans were made based on that.
The European Union decided to build ‘Information Points’ in the capitols of EU countries to help people to get information easier about the EU. Also some cultural events as concerts, exhibitions and lectures take place here. The first of this kind of Information Points were made in Budapest.
Our goal was to create a friendly – not businesslike – place where people can have a coffee and can read some useful information about the EU or one of the newspapers of a few European countries.
The main counter which serves the information and the café as well was made of prefabricated concrete. Some traditional elements were used as modernized pieces of old furniture – bench and table – and cement tiles which has 100 years of tradition alongside iconic modern furniture.
Next to the stairs an exciting Hungarian invention was used – a partition wall made of translucent concrete showing the contours of the visitors climbing the stairs.
Our work was published in leading Hungarian architecture magazines as Octogon and Atrium.
Accidentally we design two family houses in Szentendre at the same time… This one is quite close to the first one in the same nice green area of Szentendre. (Ten years ago there were only weekend houses here…) A different design which goes back to the 30’s.

Competition entry for family house competition.
Our aim was to make a comfortable and variable living space in a minimal area.
